    Addict sizing help

    Hi all,

    I just wrote off my 2003 Giant TCR C1 so am on the hunt for a new frame.
    I've spied a nice Scott Addict R3 frameset for sale in a 54cm size, but am not sure on whether it'll be too small or not.

    I've been through a Specialized BG fit, but am terrible at trying to work out what I need for putting that over to a new frame.

    The TCR I was on was a 55.5 but in semi compact geometry.

    I am 6' flat. 182cm tall, inseem ~84cm
    From my old fit, I have the following:

    Saddle height from center of BB - 767mm
    Saddle fore/aft - -58mm
    Reach - 730mm
    Drop - 110mm
    Knee angle - 30degrees

    Also have:
    Front hub to handle bars - 550mm
    Tip of saddle to center of handlebars - 580

    Currently running a 100m stem, its got a shim in it for heaps of angle options so hopefully can stay with that.

    If there is any other measurements needed I should be able to do them pretty simply.

    Thanks for any help!

    Seems like you could be best on a 56cm (large) frame. If you went the 54cm frame you would need a lot of seat post and a longer stem.

    As of a couple of weeks ago, I used to ride a 56cm Addict R15 - my measurement from tip of saddle to centre of bars was 600mm (with a 130mm stem). If you put a 110mm stem on and you will match your fit measurements.

    By the way, PM me if you are interested in my frame (only) as it is currently sitting idle.

    I had an 2009 addict r3 56cm frame and it was too small for me according to my bike fitter Nate Loyal. He had to put a 105stem with 25degrees of angle just to make me almost fit the bike properly. A 58cm would of been ideal.
